Hugh Evans

Co-Founder & CEO

Hugh is an internationally renowned development advocate and humanitarian.


His passion for poverty eradication was sparked at the age of 14 while on a World Vision trip to the Philippines. The abject poverty Hugh was exposed to led him to begin his work challenging the status quo of extreme poverty. Following a trip to South Africa in 2002 as World Vision’s inaugural Youth Ambassador, Hugh co-founded the Oaktree Foundation; Australia’s first youth-run aid organization. Oaktree’s success under Hugh’s guidance as Director led to Hugh being named Young Australian of the Year (2004) and Junior Chamber International Person of the World (2005).
